The Fine Art Of Travel Photography

How does a photographer transcend the “I was here” imagery that’s often associated with travel photography and create fine-art images of places near and far? From the dozens of workshops I’ve taught on the subject, as well as talking with—and carefully studying the work of—many of the great globetrotting lensmen and lenswomen in the field, I’ve developed a methodology that, when applied, should yield impressive and, at times, spectacular results.

NIGHT EXPOSURES: The Matterhorn from Zermatt, Switzerland. Many cities thrive at night and bring a different dimension to the travel experience. For cityscapes and architecture, use a low ISO, lock down the camera on a sturdy tripod, lock up the mirror of an SLR and use a cable release.
— – —

DEPTH OF FIELD: Bonito, Brazil. Shooting at a maximum depth of field can create unique perspectives, especially for stunning architectural shots and landscapes.
— – —

SHOOTING CONTRE-JOUR: Yazd, Iran. Shooting with the sun behind the subject eliminates harsh shadows. In-camera meters can get thrown off by contre-jour situations and underexpose the scene, so it’s important to know how to utilize the camera’s exposure lock and exposure compensation controls.

SILHOUETTES: Mandalay, Myanmar. Dramatic silhouettes can be shot at any time of the day, but there must be a strong contrast between your background and your subject.

“This image stood out as a showcase of the beauty that can be created by our natural world. The colours in this shot are gentle on the eye, the simple yet powerful position of the cheetah with the fading light of day is just spectacular, and the subtle yet encompassing presence of the moon makes this image complete.  It is stunning.” – Rachel Stewart

Cowboys by Dieter Blum

Everyone is familiar with the concept of the lonesome cowboy, a legendary American figure that has become a universal symbol for freedom, adventure, and independence thanks to westerns starring the likes of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. This is the image a well-known cigarette company had in mind when, back in 1992, they commissioned Dieter Blum for an advertising campaign that was to become a part of photo history. In a project that lasted almost twelve years, Blum travelled to Texas, New Mexico and Utah, the homelands of American cowboys, to accompany them as they went about their daily work. Searching for authenticity, Blum eschewed models and make-up and focused on the essential: man and his horse. From the lasso-swinging cowboy on the fiery mustang galloping across the Texas prairie to the lone rider against the background of a glowing sunset, Dieter Blum’s cowboys have long become iconic.
